I was talking to Larry last Wednesday. He was our class mate of the QHS Class of 63. He was a good person and will certainly be missed. My sympathy to his family.

Larry lived across the street from our home in the late 40's and early 50's . We were childhood buddies and played together with the other neighborhood kids. Always a good friend! Harry McKinney

Dear Jon and Larry's family,

I have known Larry for many years. He was married to my cousin Judy and I always felt sorry that things didn't work out for them. Whenever I saw Larry we would always visit. I saw him at the Credit Union a month or 37th & Maine a couple of months ago and his truck had broken down. I took him home and he was telling me about his heart problems. He seemed hopeful that he was going to get it taken care of. At least he is no longer suffering. Larry was a good guy and will be missed by many. I pray that God will comfort you in your time of sorrow. God Bless you.
